Amazing App for bird enthusiasts


I saw a question on birds on Pointless and got curious about all of the different species of birds in the Uk and the Spanish names as my wife is Argentinian. I found this app on Apple Store and saw that it had every bird type in the UK. I downloaded it as a birthday present to myself and now I am loving all the different forms of birds. We often have lots of different birds in our garden so I hope to cross off many birds in the next months on the App. It is everything I hoped it would be from the other reviews and more. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone vaguely or very much into wildlife and/or birds

A fantastic app


I've been using this app for some time and I really like how it is organised, how you can quickly record your sightings and how you can quickly find similar species to help you make the correct identification. It has an excellent photo library which has just been updated and all are linked with good sound recordings to help further with the identification process. Each species has good written information about habitat, migration breeding etc. The ultimate budding birders tool. A fantastic app!


Perfect for beginners

Ancient Tim

Having not been birding for a couple of decades I went again and figured, "There must be an app for this...". There is. This is it. Helps recognise birds by sight and informative text. The song feature is great for learning the songs if birds you can see - don't suppose there's any chance of a Shazam style identifier (!) Also you can record sightings for record keeping purposes. Suspect it would also be useful for experienced birders, but can vouch for it for the inexperienced without doubt.
